romney only wants to be president of half of the united states. >> president obama said that he believes in redistribution. >> we're all smarter than that, aren't we? you know it's not so simple. taxes, entitlement, debt, all three of these things must work together and keeping the status quo on all three of these things is impossible. the parties blame each other, and this is about the only thing they are 100% right on because they both took us here, and this is not an issue that gets settled in less than 50 days. 12.5 million people are still out of work. economic growth alone won't save us. it's forecast to only slowly increase over the next few years. will cain is a cnn contributor and ban barber is a graduate scholar in the city of new york. romney's comments caught on hidden camera divided the country into two groups, makers and takers. i refuse to believe the campaign is between winner take owl and karl marx. >> where we try to place these candidates on the spectrum. here's the sin that mitt romney committed dividing americans into 47 versus 53. economic conservatism appl

president obama did not cause the economic crisis but is he fixing it. remember, regardless of what political party you associate with, how much money you make, where you live, any social issues you feel passionately about, barack obama is your president. last week i showed you how gop-backed policies helped run up the debt. this week i'll show you the three mistakes president obama made that could keep him from another term. first, underestimating the economic crisis. the most important issue to voters today is the same as it was four years ago, jobs. in the summer of 2008, then candidate obama, he held a significant lead over republican nominee john mccain on this issue. 57% of voters said obama could better handle the job situation. three months later president obama was elected. fast forward to "today," 46% say the president will be better able to handle jobs in the economy. more people, 48% favor mitt romney. the second mistake the obama has a messaging problem. you know what, the president knows it. >> a mistake of my first couple of years was thinking that this job was just a
